Though I love many animals, no furry friend can melt my heart like a sweet, loving, adorable dog. As a longtime dog owner, admirer of numerous friends’ pups and overall dog-enthusiast, I am excited to be working with Petfinder to help spread the word about Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month!

October is Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month and Petfinder is celebrating by raising awareness by trying to find some of these adorable adoptable pups a fur-ever home. Check out their site for ways you can help to spread the word this month, including donating your Facebook or Twitter status to Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month to spread the word or volunteering at a local shelter.
